1933 $20 Saint-Gaudens Gold Piece Challenge Coin



Add to Cart

It’s a coin that collectors can only dream of owning. Just prior to President Roosevelt’s 1933 Gold Recall Order, a small number of $20 Gold Double Eagles were struck – and, following the order, all were to be melted. Only 1 was ever authorized for private ownership, and in 2002 it sold at auction for $7.59 million. When 10 examples surfaced in 2003, they were confiscated by the government and eventually declared illegal to own.

Now, this affordable Challenge Coin offers a great way to honor one of history’s most rare and “challenging” U.S. coins in your own collection! Precious 24k gold plating enhances both sides of the coveted 1933 gold Double Eagle design. Order now to add one of America’s most famous rare coin designs to your collection!
